Den, a miter slot is only required to align with a flat cutting tool like a saw blade or sanding disk. The miter slot must be parralel to the flat blade/disk or kick back will occur. Since a router bit is round (regardless of the profile) you can cut at any angle with the same results and no kickback. Make sense? When you clamp your featherboards in position you can adjust them to the fence at any angle. If you used fixed locations to mount from (like a T track) then your fence must be in rough alignment to the T track; this is a restriction I have no need for. There is no wrong way to go, use what you are most comfortable with.
